An artisan jewelry journey in color, texture and fun. Beaded jewelry with handcrafted sterling silver is my focus and joy.

I participate in a variety of promotional activities with a fabulous group of jewelry artists from Etsy known as the Art Jewelry Collective. Our next big joint venture is a full page ad in Ornament. This wonderful magazine has been around for more than 30 years, and "supports the richness and diversity of the art and craft of wearable art in a stunning visual display of creative work. The only international magazine covering all aspects of personal adornment, Ornament provides a wealth of information on contemporary, ethnographic and ancient jewelry, clothing, beads, and costume.

Each issue features profiles of prominent and emerging artists, reviews of important museum and gallery exhibitions, marketplace venues, and other insightful, multifaceted coverage.

Ornament is read by artists, collectors, craftspeople, designers, gallery owners, retailers, students, teachers, researchers, and museum staff in the United States and more than seventy foreign countries. Ornament is circulated to paid subscribers and distributed in the United States at newsstands and bookstores through CMG Distributors, and through Disticor Direct in Canada." (Ornament Media Kit information).

Here's a sneak preview of the ad:So many pretties from some very talented artists, I can't believe that I'm part of this wonderful group. The ad will be in three issues (October 2007, December 2007, and March 2008), and I could not be more excited about this opportunity for exposure. Let's see where we go from here!
